Armenian Genocide Centennial Initiatives

The 100 Years, 100 Facts Project was born out of a strong desire to commemorate the centennial of the Armenian Genocide in a meaningful manner. As we mentioned in our five reasons behind this initiative, we recognise that something must be done to mark one hundred years of this turning point in the Armenian experience.

We are happy to note that not just something, but many, many things are being done by Armenians all over the world on this occasion. Below is a list of such projects. Some are personal, individual undertakings, some are in small groups, some are community-wide or national in scope. Most fall within Armenian circles, some break through to the wider world, and a few are meant more specifically for society elsewhere, such as in Turkey.

Regardless of location or scale, the centennial presents an opportunity to renew our commitment to recognising and celebrating our history and culture. Armenians have come a long way and have much in store for the future. Let 2015 be the year when we pause for a moment and think about where we have been and where we are headed.

If you know of any initiatives not listed below, please inform The 100 Years, 100 Facts Project about it by e-mailing or through social media. This list will be continuously updated.
